SOUTHLAKE, Texas -- Travelocity Business customers can book Amtrak
With that development, it's clear that Travelocity Business --
Sabre's full-service travel agency -- is trying to differentiate
itself from its online competitors by implementing features that
already exist in GetThere's self-booking tool for corporations.
Sabre several months ago folded GetThere into Travelocity
In late 2002, GetThere launched the Amtrak functionality, with
travel agencies fulfilling the train tickets. That option is still
available to corporations. Travelocity Business said its
fulfillment centers are now set up to handle Amtrak bookings.
Travelocity Business also tried to separate itself from the
online pack when it announced late last year that it signed up
large companies like Computer Associates and General Dynamics.
GetThere actually contracted those companies under a program
called GetThere Full Service Option. GetThere Full Service Option
still exists, but it's called -- you guessed it -- Travelocity
